Ken Saffran is the featured reader in the first segment:
Ken Saffran has poems published in the Haight Ashbury
Literary Journal, Bay Area Poets Seasonal Review and
upcoming in Ambush and Nerve Cowboy. His chapbook
Strange Animal was published by 3300 Press. Although he
grew up in the Midwest, he always had Far West
sensibilities, so it was inevitable that he move to San
Francisco and join the great tribe of poets in the Bay Area.
In the second segment, Clara Hsu's segment of the San Francisco Open Mic Poetry Podcast TV Show, her featured reader will be Selene Steese.
Selene is co-host of her own reading series, Oakland S.O.U.P.,
which happens every first and third Thursday, and I am
a very prolific writer. I write at least two poems per week,
and I'm currently working on three novels, one of which
is complete. Songs sneak up on me at any time,
demanding to be sung and writing themselves
as I open my mouth and hear the sounds come out.
